Today's post is part part of Brilliant Earth's Create a Little Love Campaign. Bloggers from all different niches are posting photos that creatively spell out "love," so of course I did some nail art!
The houndstooth nails are two coats of OPI My Vampire Is Buff, with stamping decals using BM-322 and black Konad polish. The filled in parts are piCture pOlish Fairy Floss and LaCC 1950.
This was my first time ever making my own stamping decals; I'm happy with how easy they were to make, but definitely think I could have done better in applying them to the nail. Nevertheless, they look awesome from arm's length!
My ring finger is OPI My Vampire Is Buff, with two black studs from Born Pretty Store. My thumb (which I forgot to photograph) is the same look with studs, only the base is the bright pink LaCC 1950. My middle finger is piCture pOlish Fairy Floss, and I freehanded the lettering with acrylic paint.
Although I'm not a huge fan of Valentine's Day, I did feel obliged to do some nails for the occasion, haha. This look is definitely cute, though not my style at all... But I got a ton of compliments on it yesterday! Seems like all the girls at the ballet school and company love the girly manis much more than my vampy polishes that are the usual fare for February!
Anywho, the boy and I both think that Valentine's Day is rather frivolous, and he's got to work that night anways... I'm planning on using the day as an excuse to eat an entire tub of Ben & Jerry's ice cream all by myself!! Who's with me? :P
